Panic Is Not a Policy

Panic Is Not a Policy
17 September 2012
With all the protests and violence in Arab and Muslim countries generated by a despicable and demeaning film about Islam, here is a sobering prediction: There will be more such films and clips, they will be even more provocative, and they will generate even more violent reaction among Arabs and Muslims. And no matter who is behind them, many will see the hands of Israel and the United States.
Yet this is not time for panic but for steady and intensive diplomacy.
